Display/Render PDF or docx files in flash same like jquery colorbox or fancybox popup


I want to render pdf files on the fly in flash in nice popup window.

I am able to show PDF files in nice popup in colorbox or fancybox.

Same way instead of jquery colorbox or fancybox popup pdf files will be seen in flash.

Any Idea?


The problem is that PDF files need a reader application installed on the visitor’s computer, or a flash-based reader application supplied on the website.

For example: http://flexpaper.devaldi.com/

However, considering that Flash isn’t supported on mobile devices these days, it’s not really a good idea to go with a flash-based solution for things.

It’s usually best just to offer a link to the PDF file and let the visitor handle it however they capable of doing so.

Mozilla are working on a library that can render PDFs in the browser: http://mozilla.github.io/pdf.js/
Mad what you can do with javaScript today, eh?


I heard about that a while back when they first started working on it. Good to see that it actually appears to be in usable shape now.
